According to the Paris Academy of Science the sex of eggs laid by pure bred fowls may be determined by weight and size. A test is to hold the egg in the left hand in the sun or close to an electric or gas light. Shade the end of the egg with the right hand, and look for the air space or “setting” (a dark, watery spot larger than a ten cent piece); if this is found on the top it is a male, but if lower down the side it is a female egg.
